I'm not a recruiter right now. I once was. I may be again someday.
I remember that it was tough to get past gatekeepers and get the attention of hiring managers. I was good at it. But, it still S*%^ED.
So, I offered a recruiter a way to connect with virtually any senior HR executive or hiring manager using a very positive, non-threatening approach that virtually assured a face-to-face meeting. Interestingly, he declined. He didn't argue that the approach wouldn't work. He… Continue

I love my football, I love my Carlton Football Club, and my mood on the days they play, effectively mirrors the way the team plays. I understand it is a game, but it is a release, an escape if you will. It is a great leveler, CEO's and Parliamentarians and truck drivers and people without a job, pensioners and students are all the same. It doesn't matter who you are, if you are personally invested (not so much financially) in some way. The ramifications of those 22 players (AFL team) has on… Continue

In one position I would jingle my car keys at about 7:00 p.m. letting my manager know I was finally leaving after working for twelve hours. At another company I would see people sitting at their desk playing on the internet to look like they were working - staying as long as they could for political reasons. I heard employees arguing about how early they came in and that they stayed later than everyone else, but yet they still had nothing to do. Why is it in some corporate cultures sitting in… Continue

Please let me know!

The vote is still out on the advantages of having and sending video resumes. I have read many articles on this subject and the decision is pretty much split right down the middle as to whether they offer a real benefit as opposed to a traditional resume. I have diligently completed a Visual CV as well as profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, Recruitingblogs.com and Twitter. I am socially networked and totally Googleable… do I really need another web presence to drive people to find/contact/reach… Continue

In a conversation over the last week on RBC the subject of cold calling came up. One responder said that cold calling is unprofessional. Now to this person's defense, they were saying that they believe warm calls are more professional and that you should know something about who you are calling before you call. As I spent much of the past week cold calling, I chuckled some and thought a little about this conversation and perspective. My perspective is that this is an apples and oranges kind of… Continue

Employers use telephone interviews as a way of identifying and recruiting candidates for employment. Phone interviews are often used to screen candidates in order to narrow the pool of applicants who will be invited for in-person interviews. They are also used as a way to minimize the expenses involved in interviewing out-of-town candidates. If you are lucky you will have a predetermined time for a phone interview, but other calls might come… Continue

At Pan Eight Consulting, we have worked with a number of clients who have experienced candidate or customer data theft in some shape or form.
The economic downturn is leading to an increase in data theft, with recruitment agencies the worst hit sector and most susceptible.
Increasing competition for a diminishing number of client job offers among agencies is causing a rise in data theft.
Based on a recent survey, among recruiters, three quarters of data… Continue

I rarely get up on my soap box, but man.. this has really annoyed me.
I love my football, I love my sport, I love hearing about it, I love reading about it and basically I cannot get enough. However this month, there has been a couple of issues arising which really sticks in my craw.... (where is my craw by the way?)
Anyway, in the media here, there seems to be a pre-occupation with people losing their jobs, specifically coaches of football clubs. Aren't we in a recession?… Continue

It saddens me that there are many recent grads in healthcare and that few facilities are willing to give them an opportunity. While I do understand that it's a matter of investing time and money into someone who may take off within months, healthcare is sorely in need of nurses. Few nurses are interested in teaching because teaching does not pay as well as other areas of nursing, so though there may be men and women interested in becoming nurses getting into nursing school is not easy. Although… Continue

Let me explain something here to the guys. When you get married, Game Over.
I was playing a video game. It was 2 AM. I was using my Plantronics headset with mic shouting at my team of online gamers (mostly college kids) when all of a sudden my wife pulls the electrical plug.
We were on the last level to slay the Dragon monster and she drops the power strip in my lap. Friggin’ unplugged and offline, my team lost hours worth of… Continue

According to a study by Deloitte LLP, a majority of employers feel that they have a right to know what’s being posted on personal social media sites like Facebook and Twitter
. A rant or negative opinion about a company can end up damaging reputations and divulging secrets valuable to competitors. But most of us can’t help but check up on our personal sites. The most common reasoning for staying active in personal social media goes something… Continue

It sounds like everyone’s worse nightmare…. You go to the office and suddenly realize you’re just wearing underpants, or worse nothing at all. I think we’ve all had that dream, am I right?
BUT, in reality it doesn’t really matter how you’re dressed to affectively present yourself in the BEST positive light. From the comfort of your home (wearing whatever), simply get involved and BRAND yourself as the expert that you WANT to be.
